NO CALLER ID, a 3-min short film written by DUNCAN GATES premieres at Bright International Film Festival 22nd Sept, Grimmfest 7th Oct, Austin Micro Film Festival, USA Feb 2024

An under-pressure personal assistant gets a call from a kidnapper threatening the life of his son unless he pays their ransom. 

Except, he doesn’t have a son…

NO CALLER ID is a needle-sharp and espresso-dark 3-minute shot of terror from director James Hughes and writer Duncan Gates. It stars Conor Hughes (in his film debut) as the recipient of an ominous phone call, and Rob Fitch (Derek, Shaun of the Dead, Big Finish) as the mysterious caller.

DUNCAN GATES has been longlisted for numerous theatre writing awards, including the Bruntwood Prize, the Verity Bargate Award, and the Papatango Prize – NO CALLER ID is his first foray into film.
